Ivan Provorov signs six-year extension

Restricted free-agent Ivan Provorov has agreed to a contract extension with the Philadelphia Flyers. The deal is for six years and will pay the defenseman $40.5 million. (Elliotte Friedman on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact:

Provorov recorded just 27 points and -16 rating in 2018-19, which was quite disappointing after what was a very encouraging sophomore season that resulted in 41 points and a +17. This regression clearly wasn't all on Provorov though, as much of the Flyers also took a step back. Just look at Shane Gostisbehere, who dropped from 65 to 37 points a season ago. Provorov feels like one of those players that is better in real life than in fantasy. He'll play his low-to-mid-20s shutdown minutes on your top pair, but he's not needed on the Flyers power-play. However, he's a very solid depth defenseman in fantasy leagues that record hits and blocks, as he's a consistent contributor that is not a black-hole offensively.
